"Yay! D50 arrived Monday!"


Peoria, US
          

My mom has been in the hospital for the past week so I haven't had time to post anything, but here are links to 3 pictures that I took near/at the hospital during the past week. Critique/general comments welcome!

Those are some nice shots; you did a good job capturing some golden light. I think I remember what that's like, but it's so cold and grey here...

If I could offer a comment or two, you can take it for what it's worth (not much.) In the first pic, is there any way to get past those tree branches? I think it's a great shot but the branches, to me, are a bit distracting. For the third pic, I like it but something seems missing. Maybe a really nice blue sky or something, maybe someone else will have a good idea but it just seems to be missing that little extra. Sorry I can't elaborate, it's just a gut feel. The second pic, no comments, I think it's great.

Thanks for posting and keep them coming.

Oh, any shotting data? Tripod or hand held?

I like the first one best, it almost looks un-real.

First hope your Mom is okay. Second congratulations on your D50!! Take it from a film guy I love my D50.

As far as the pic's go they are very nice.

I agree with the previous poster on the 3rd one, the sky is kinda blaa but sometimes you can't help that unless you start to use filters or someone who is really good at post processing. The other thing what F stop did you use on the third one. Its also a little soft, I would have shot that on a tripod around f8 to around f11. Just a thought.

I don't find the branches to distracting; Plus I love the color and the way you used the steeple to draw your eye to the left and then the golden light works to the right.

Again welcome and congrats on the D50. Kind Regards Jim

Sadly, my mom passed away on the 23rd. She had Ovarian cancer in stage 4 before they caught it. They gave her 12-72 hours to live on the 21st, which also happened to be my birthday.

Anywho, exif data is posted here:

Its cold and grey here, but its been nice the past couple weeks. Here's the EXIF data. I know in the 2nd and 3rd, I didn't pay attention to the ISO and thats why that is so high, so I could get a slower shutter speed. Oh well, I just gotta get used to it I guess heh.

1)
1/125
F/10
ISO 200
No tripod, handheld and cropped

2)
1/500
F/7.1
ISO 1600
No tripod, handheld and cropped

3)
1/320
F/7.1
ISO 1600
No tripod, handheld and cropped.

Ah that explains a little loss of detail and a little more noise. I have Auto ISO off in all modes so I can choose my ISO. In the last two you would have been better off at 400 or 800 ISO the shutter speed would have been slower but not by much. #2 might have been around 250 to 300 and #3 around 150 to 250.

The D50 likes to bump up the ISO to show off how its the best DSLR at high ISO's(just a little humor but the camera does bump it up) but as good as it is lower ISO's still give better pictures just like lower ISO film's are finer and sharper.

Tis the time of year to be grey and we do what we can. Well hope this is helpful and keep taking pictuers the D50 is fun but alas tomorrow I am going to shoot some Kodachrome slides in my MF FM3a. Jim

Edited I just read your Mom's passing I am very sorry. I am a Lab Tech and a Paramedic and I see this all the time and I never get used to it. I will remember you and your mother at church sunday.

Apologies for dredging up the old post (and my regrets for your mother's passing)

Those are awesome pictures. Its not often I come across pictures of places that I recognize! This is Methodist hospital, (and St Mary's Cathedral) in Peoria, correct? Are you from the area?

I got a D50 2 weeks ago, and have been struggling to lean it. I will admit, I dont know much about photography, but it is sure fun to play with. It works superbly in the automatic modes, which is what I use when I want a keeper. I am slowly learning...I finaly have a handle on the "S" mode (shutter prty). Still confused a bit by "A" mode (aperture prty). I will say this is going to be a fun hobby
